Coconut Kenny's

Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring, center, city officials, co-owners of Coconut Kenny’s and their family help cut the ribbon to the restaurant location in central Marysville on July 6.


This is the seventh location for the restaurant which has been expanding across Washington state

Coconut Kenny’s, a new pizza and sandwich restaurant has opened in Marysville.

The restaurant held their grand opening on July 6 at their location at 3943 116th St. NE, Suite 107.

Local officials gathered during the day to cut the ribbon for the business’ first official day of operation.

“Coconut Kenny’s is a tropical-themed island-vibe restaurant,” said Chay Tan, one of the co-owners of the business.

The restaurant has six other locations, with three in Whatcom County and three in Skagit County.

“So the progression has pulled us south and we’re super excited that Marysville is the next city along the way of expansion,” said Tan.

Tan said customers like the food available at the restaurant.

“The pizzas are a deep-dish pan style pizza and we’re kind of known for our toasted cheese crust,” he said. “It’s really cool and flavorful when done that way.”

The sandwiches are made with Hawaiian bread that the restaurant makes in-house every day.

In addition to those items there are salads and appetizers on the menu and beer on tap at the restaurant.

The environment in the restaurant evokes a tropical island with décor and seating that mimics oceanside venues, said Tan.

“Our theme is a taste of paradise,” he said. “Not only are we known for our pizzas and sandwiches, but the vibe in our restaurant is very cool. We want our customers to feel, whether they’re dining in for half an hour or staying for more than an hour, that they’re on a tropical vacation.”

Tan said he hopes the restaurant provides a welcome place for customers to come and enjoy some food.

“It’s just relaxing. We take a lot of pride in customer service and not just being another pizza restaurant. We know customers have a lot of options and we want to make sure that we’re not taking those decisions for granted,” he said.

The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day.

Tan said he was glad to be able to bring the restaurant chain’s next location to Marysville.

“We’re excited to get open,” he said. “If you haven’t tried us, come down and give us a try and we look forward to serving the Marysville community.”
